I buy everything second hand, except like merch at shows, so probably $25 for a tshirt

I do the second-hand thing too, I think it's better for the economy, reduces waste and you can find better quality clothing, they usually stand the test of time and of course, better prices.

@PappyOnWings Yea, last week was a half off all the clothing, I was there at 7AM to get a good deal and boy did I. I'm all for thrift shopping. I can't imagine paying full price at a mall or dept store.

I always strike out at thrift stores. It is such a bummer. I love the idea, but I never find anything good or worthwhile.

@MarvelAnn Before I went thrift shopping, I'd imagine what item I wanted, and in what size. Then I'd confidently head for the nearest yard sale or thrift shop and look around to spot it. It was always there!
My mom and daughter did the same thing,,scoring full length leather coats that fit as though custom made, London tailored suits for my dad, etc. We didn't worry about it..just put in our "orders" to the "universe" and it appeared.

I'm such a cheapskate I don't spend anything on clothes unless I have to, probably explains why I'm unattached, but £80 on a Minnesota Vikings jacket many moons ago smile001.gif

One of many leather jackets - a trench at $700 years ago. I still rock it on the regular smile001.gif
Both of my wedding dresses were off the rack, both under $100. I've never seen the point of blowing big money on wedding stuff.

@AmiSue I'm envious.

That is a very high price to pay.

@Redcupcoffee Yes, it was. I got some fabulous experience from it, and my kids can truly say "my mama wore combat boots."

@arronpaul46 Thank you!! It is really easy to be pretty at 20something, as I realize how old that picture is. Circa 1980.

I have a leather coat like the ones in the movie lost boys. I bought it in Korea in 1988 my friend and I each got one it cost us 60$ each back then. Had seen one in the leather store similar to mine the price tag was 700$. I know the can you sell it for that factor comes into play. My dingo boots are 130$

A suit jacket that cost about $100, it was part of a suit I put together for job interviews about 3 years ago. I haven't worn it since. I got the job and stopped looking. The new job more than paid for the suit.

I don't usually buy expensive clothes. Good quality is my preference. The most expensive for me was a leather jacket that cost around $400

$1,200 silk Armani shirt, but it was on clearance and I got it for $300

WOW. Do you still wear it?

@Shelton Yep, it's great.. I've had it for about 8 years now and it's still in perfect condition. It's a long sleeve, black button up shirt that can be used for both dressing up and more casual situations. I call it my "second date shirt"..

@SteveW That's great. It is nice to be able to fit into clothes that you have had for years.

I splurged and bought myself a pair of brown boots, you know, the trendy kind people wear with leggings. I spent $150 on them and love them so much. I was in that store a few months later and they had the same boots on clearance for $40 in black. Now I have both colors!!

A Brooks Bros. woollen coat, which cost me £800 (around $1100) - I felt like an absolute scumbag (and an utter failure of a socialist) for spending so much on an item of clothing, but it was a once-in-a-lifetime thing and I really like a nice coat.

A freaking pair of glasses $350. Geez, what you have to do to see in this world.

I have paid $200 for a pair of shades once. I will not do that again!

@Shelton I saw a show one time that went into the sunglass industry and showed that the cheaper manufacturers were getting their lenses from the same places that more expensive manufacturers were getting them. In a nutshell you were paying for name only when buying sunglasses.

@Darthpug You are correct. I was young and dumb at that time.

Avengers Loki? Awesome.

Probably a pair of Jordans. They were like $140. I got them for free though. If we count sun glasses, then it was a pair of Oakley's that cost a little bit more than $300. I got those for free too lol. Also a suit. I have one that cost about $900. I got it for about a little bit less than half price though.

A five hundred dollar suit my sister bought me for interviews after I graduated from college. The darn thing must have shrunk because it's too small now.

When I was in college nearing graduation (1977) I bought a three peice taylored wool suit, ivory color, $400 (a lot then). It was great and I looked like the shit then, thin, bushy curly, brunet/redish hair.

It's gone! Now, it's all gone.

Several hundred $ on motorcycle clothing and gear. Seemed like a good occasion not to cheap out.
